About Nevada Volunteers: Nevada Volunteers, a 501 (c) 3, is the Governor's Commission on Service and works to foster a statewide culture of service and volunteerism. When volunteers feel like their contributions are appreciated and valued by the organization, they are more likely to feel connected and continue volunteering. We know the Governor’s Points of Light Awards doesn’t recognize all of Nevada’s individuals and organizations whose dedicated efforts demonstrate a spirit of caring, goodwill, and service to others, which is why Nevada Volunteers has multiple opportunities for recognition. You can recognize volunteers with a signed Governor’s Volunteer Recognition Certificate from Governor Sandoval, at no charge. Recognize a volunteer or organization that shines the “Light” of volunteerism and brightens the lives of others with a Nevada’s “Point of Light” bookmark, letter from Nevada Volunteers, and acknowledgement on Nevada Volunteers’ communications.
